Jönköping University's international conference on Middle East coverage scheduled for October 2-3, 2009

The role political and economic powers play in shaping media discourses from viewpoints of religion, ideology and control in the Middle East will be the topic of the Hamrin Conference on International Coverage of the Middle East, Oct 2-3 at Jönköping University, Sweden.

An extraordinary group of media executives, newspaper editors, media scholars will gather to discuss how conflicts are depicted, how the region's peoples see themselves and how the rest of the world sees them. Among the speakers will be

Jon Williams, World Editor for Newsgathering at the BBC
Tony Burman, Managing Director of Al Jazeera English
Prof. Greg Philo from the Glasgow Media Group at University of Glasgow
Prof. John Maxwell Hamilton, Louisiana State University
The conference will also feature a discussion of how the region is portrayed in the Swedish media by representatives of SVT, Dagens Nyheter, the Church of Sweden, the Jewish Council of Sweden, and the Muslim Council of Sweden. Confirmed speakers include
Lars Boström from Dagens Nyheter
Lisa Abramowicz from the Jewish Council
Abdirizak Webiri from the Muslim Council

Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
